Type twice for truth?

Jean Veronis at Technologies du Langage has done some additional measurement and modeling of Google count oddities. I haven't had a chance to work through his latest stuff in detail, but it looks like he has hold of something. Jean's bottom line recommendation: "if you want to know the real index count for any word, simply type it twice:"

Word Count
stuttering 749,000
stuttering stuttering 452,000
